First date ideas based on your partners horoscope

Did you know that the hardest part of dating is not that first awkward hug or deciding what to do; instead, it’s about figuring out what you should do together and how to make your date interesting. 

So, rather than following the age-old ‘let’s meet for a coffee’ plan or stressing over making a date plan, look to the planets to get some guidance.  

Of course, there are tons of things you can do on a first date, but basing the first date plan on your preferences and unique personality can increase your chance of having a memorable time.

Before we start it’s worth clarifying that nobody is fully just one sign. However, in some cases, certain signs are more predominant than others, and this is the approach we take here.

These dating ideas can apply if the person you are meeting has the Ascendant, the Sun, the Moon or at least two planets in the selected sign. It can also be valid if the person has the ruler of that sign prominently placed in their horoscope. 

Without further ado, let’s get into the interesting first date ideas:
